Zionism – Conservapedia

| September 14, 2018

Zionism was a nationalist political movement by East European Jews dedicated to reestablishing the Jewish state in the land of Israel, starting in the late 19th century. The goal was achieved with the independence of Israel in 1948, and the term now connotes political support for the continued existence of this Jewish nation. History Although Jews have been returning to their homeland throughout the last two thousand years, the movement in its modern guise was started in the 1890s.
